Comment: Most of Antenor's victories are known from Eusebius' victor list, where it says Ἀντήνωρ Ἀθηναῖος ἢ Μιλήσιος παγκράτιον ἀκόντιον (= ἀκονιτί), περιοδονίκης, ἄληπτος (= ἄλειπτος) ἐν ταῖς τρισὶν ἡλικίαις. Moretti interpreted that Antenor won the Olympia in all three age categories and that 'periodonikes' pertains to that accomplishment, rather than to win the four games. We follow Moretti here. The athlete is furthermore mentioned in an honorary inscription from Attica (IG II(2) 472, ll. 12-13) and one from Miletus (I.Milet I(3).138, l. 44); as a stephanophoros in l. 38 in Milet I.3, 123; and in three inscriptions from Didyma (see LGPN).
